If my 2 year has increased muscle spascity in one leg does that mean she could have a muscle disorder?

Hard to say

Spasticity usually relates to lack of coordinated nerve messages from the brain and may indicate a subtle brain injury often called cerebral palsy in its more dramatic forms. A muscle disorder implies selective abnormality in the muscle, usually producing a weakness.An exam and testing if indicated can separate the likely cause.It is time for a discussion with your doc.

Is restless legs syndrome a muscle disorder or a problem of the nervous system?

Not sure

Restless_legs
I can't tell which but it can be due to low iron levels and it not this it responsed to dopamine agonists like Requip or sinemet implying a nervous system problem. Some people do better with anticonvulsant meds like neurontin or klonopin which may have some muscle relaxant effects. So it may have multiple causes.

These are uncommon side effects of these medications. Although it is possible I think is unlikely. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is. By trying the medication. Hope you feel well soon.
